NY Mets -1½ +104 over Arizona
4:10 PM EST. We’re coming right back on the Metropolitans today after ripping up our ticket on them yesterday. What we have here is one starter that has walked 10 batters in nine innings (Madison Bumgarner (LHP - ARI) against New York’s starter that has walked two batters in 16 innings while striking out 16.
Last season, shoulder inflammation cost MadBum six weeks in June/July. His 2nd half ERA/WHIP would have you believe he spent that IL stint finding what he left in San Francisco. All he found was a little bit of hit%/strand% regression, when what he was looking for was his former velocity/swing and miss rate/K%. Alas, those are still lost in the Bay Area. MadBum has an ERA of 1.38 after three starts. His xERA is 7.52.
Tylor Megill (RHP - NYM) has converted his great skills into some excellent early results. He is missing bats at a high clip (16.0%) and throwing a lot of strikes (33% ball%). He's also inducing groundballs when batters do make contact against him (52%)
NY Mets -1½ +104 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.08)
